About Louisiana Abortion Fund
In 2012, a group of local organizers and activists who believe that access to abortion care should not depend on your income or resources founded the Louisiana Abortion Fund, formerly known as the New Orleans Abortion Fund. Their mission is to help low-income people seeking abortions in Louisiana and the Gulf South by providing empowering assistance and resources.
Louisiana Abortion Fund's Community
Since forming in the fall of 2012, volunteers and staff with the Louisiana Abortion Fund have held garage sales, thrown block parties, held fashion shows and taco-eating contests and comedy showcases, and participated in the National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon to raise money to fund abortion and build power in Louisiana and the Gulf South. LAAF works in coalition with reproductive health, rights, and justice organizations across the state and across the country to organize in opposition to abortion bans, advance economic justice, and defend abortion access.
The Louisiana Abortion Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is powered by individual support. Please consider making a contribution to help improve abortion access in Louisiana and the Gulf South. All individual donations are tax deductible, and go directly to funding abortions.
